Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worst for president Trump, his approval rating has fallen to 37% — a new low, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released on Wednesday.
The poll found that Trump is losing crucial support among Republicans, men, and white voters.
The survey of 1,056 voters from across the country found that Trump’s approval among Republican voters dropped to 81%, from 91% of those surveyed in a similar Quinnipiac poll two weeks ago. His disapproval rating jumped from 5% to a whopping 14%.
“Most alarming for President Donald Trump, the demographic underpinnings of his support, Republicans, white voters, especially men and those without a college degree, are starting to have doubts,” assistant director of the poll, Tim Malloy, said in a statement.
The poll showed those in Trump’s most supportive demographics — male and white voters — are increasingly unhappy with his performance. Forty-three percent of men approved of Trump — down from 49% in the last poll, while 44% of white voters approved, also down from 49%.
The vast majority of those polled — 70% — do not believe Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that former president Barack Obama wiretapped his phones leading up to the 2016 election.
Additionally, 73% of voters said that Trump and his administration make statements without supporting evidence “very often” or “somewhat often.” In other words, they lie a lot.
Voters also showed increasing doubt in Trump’s honesty and leadership. Sixty percent of respondents believe that Trump is dishonest, compared with 55% in the March 7 poll, and 57% believe he doesn’t care about average Americans.
